Review
Can someone please tell somebody who can do something about it, that we
don't need any more platform games on the CD≥≤?  Even if some of them are
good, we don't need so many.  Half of the first wave of games released for
the machine were platform games.  I think we've had our fill now...thank
you.

That said, ALFRED CHICKEN is not a bad game.  It's not particularly
noteworthy or charming, but it's a pleasant enough game.  It's graphics
would look stunning on a Nintendo Entertainment System, the 8-bit one.
That should give you a clue as to what's going on here.  Another mindless
SUPER MARIO type game with the cuteness-intensity level turned to 11.

The mechanics are the same as with any other platform game released after
SUPER MARIO BROS.  You jump around collecting things while avoiding
enemies and finding "secret" levels and entering bonus rounds.  Definitely
not ground-breaking stuff here.

The CD≥≤'s control pad is serviceable with A.C.  It provides adequate
control with the occasional non-responding tendency that is unfortunately
becoming familiar to CD≥≤ owners.  You won't find yourself wanting to
throw it through the wall with ALFRED CHICKEN though.

If you don't own OSCAR, ARABIAN NIGHTS, TROLLS, ZOOL, SUPER METHANE
BROTHERS, FURY OF THE FURRIES or any of the other CD≥≤ platform games,
then you might want to take a look at this.  Otherwise, let it sit on the
shelf.  You wouldn't be getting anything you don't already have.
